A little too much padding at first, but now are perfect after about 100 miles.
Super comfy riding gravel, lots of palm padding
These are fine fitting and super comfortable gloves and their padding is the best so far in making riding a great experience. They took no time to break in. The gloves are close to perfect and if Giordana desires to attain perfection they simply need to add a small additional length on the securing Velcro, so that it is easier to take off, as without a tab it is not as simple and easy as it should be. Other than that single improvement these gloves are bright enough to be seen in Fluo Yellow and the first gloves that are as palm protective as the ancient gloves I wore that had palms of skirting leather that took forever to break in.
Good fit, comfortable. (Am average size female, bought Men's S.) Love reflective elements on back of glove. One thing that would make them better is terry cloth on index finger as well as thumb.
I tried the Strada Gel Gloves a few years ago and found them to be the best for a person like me that needs extra cushioning. I recently purchased four pairs in the different colors to replace my other gloves. I have large hands so I need the XXL.
